Unknown Texas - The Lone Star State
Wild West, cowboys, ghost towns, oil: that's the myth of Texas. But what's the real Texas?
Texas, as the second largest state of the U.S. - larger than Germany, Great Britain, and the Benelux countries put together - has much more to offer than just the cliché claims. Miles of sandy beaches on the Gulf of Mexico, the mighty valleys of the Rio Grande, spectacular national parks, desert regions, swamplands and endless prairies, as well as hip metropolises like Austin or San Antonio. Originality meets modernity - welcome to the "LoneStar State"! We meet people who bring us closer to the unknown Texas and show landscapes and facets that will surprise the viewer. We go in search of traces of special places and people in the extremely diverse state of Texas. Our journey goes from the prairies of the north to the Gulf Coast in the south, and from the swamplands in the east to Big Bend National Park on the border with Mexico.
